Iran's Problems.

Iran's ministers, vice presidents resign posts
Iran's worst political crisis in years deepened yesterday, with the government saying most of its ministers and vice presidents have submitted resignations to protest the barring of thousands of would-be candidates from upcoming elections. Vice President Mohammad Ali Abtahi warned that unless the candidates are reinstated, "the country will face many problems, both at home and abroad." Government spokesman Abdollah Ramezanzadeh said most of Iran's six vice presidents and 24 ministers have handed letters of resignation to President Mohammad Khatami.
